(HARRISBURG, PA)—The Keystone Progress Political Action Committee (KPPAC) announced today that it will endorse candidates for the 2014 election cycle. This will be the first time that the progressive organization will endorse candidates.
“Keystone Progress has grown to be one of the most powerful progressive organizations in Pennsylvania. Our board of directors has recognized that we can have an impact beyond our usual issue-based work by getting actively involved in electing progressive candidates,” said Michael Morrill, speaking for the PAC. “We can’t win on our most important issues if we keep electing people who don’t share our values.”
Keystone Progress has hundreds of thousands of members who frequently take action on a variety of progressive issues. Keystone Progress members will be encouraged to support endorsed candidates through their votes, volunteering for campaign work and by making contributions.
KPPAC has posted a questionnaire for candidates seeking its endorsement. The questionnaire is available at www.kppac.com.
The endorsements will be announced on a rolling basis, with the first endorsements likely to be announced during the Pennsylvania Progressive Summit in Harrisburg, February 28-March 1.
